Luke Hess
Luke Hess
DJ and producer from Detroit, USA.
Born in 1980 in Metro Detroit and subject to the city's mid-90's warehouse parties, Luke Hess has harnessed a deep appreciation for electronic music and the expression of the underground movement. His background in mathematics and engineering has given him a scientific approach to the dance-floor, using frequencies, tones, and soundscapes to transform surroundings and mood.
Luke currently holds positions at Omar S' FXHE label & Carl Craig's Planet-e label in Detroit. Hess has celebrated original productions and remix material on labels such as DeepLabs, FXHE, Planet-e, Dolly, Motech, Rekids, Echocord, Kontra-Music, Modelisme, Ornaments, Echocord Colour, & more. In 2009, Luke released his first album, "Light in the Dark" on Denmark-based record label, Echocord. "Light in the Dark" received glowing reviews and was hailed by many as one of the best deep techno albums of the year. His second artist album "Keep On" was release on CD in 2012 and on 2x12" vinyl in 2013 and received a superb score of 4.5/5 & recommended review on Resident Advisor.
With over 15 years of DJ experience and many notable LIVE sets across the world, Luke is regarded as a perfectionist on stage. Hess is known to layer his sets in a very detailed, hypnotic, & soulful manner. After playing many notable venues & festivals such as Detroit Electronic Music Festival, Awakenings Festival, Berghain & Panorama Bar - Berlin, Dimensions Festival, ENTER. - Ibiza, Fabric - London, Unit - Tokyo, De School - Amsterdam, Culture Box - Copenhagen, OUTPUT - NYC, Decibel Festival - Seattle, Bassment - Hong Kong, Concrete - Paris, Dude Club - Milan, +++, he is excited to continue exploring the world stage and introducing new and old fans to his raw & deep breed of Detroit techno.
Kenneth Graham
Kenneth Graham
Emerging from the endless stretches of Los Angeles with a sound vision. Like others of his creed, Kenneth Graham's cynicism about the state of the underground manifests itself in a creative flow. The transcendental core of his approach frees him of the aesthetic constraints that limit most and propels him across the frontiers of experimental electronic music, establishing a diversity and range sparsely discovered.One of the defining traits of great artists is that their work is instantly recognizable. Even to the untrained eye, a Picasso always leaps off a canvas. Further, the sounds of Miles Davis' trumpet, regardless of what style he is playing, would never be mistaken for anyone else. So too can it be said of Kenneth Graham's music-his touch is evident to both novice and connoisseur fans of electronic music. Always infinitely combining equal elements of mind and machine, resulting in a sound that is both clinical and funky.It's no surprise that since his introduction to electronic music in 1984, Kenneth has gone on to become one of the most influential dance music producers, which is evidenced by being named in URB Magazine's "Next 100" for 2000. But Graham's music exceeds the limitations of restrictive titles and is simply good music. "For those producers that have a gift for anticipating the future, and belief in that vision, then it is only a matter of time before the masses jock your sound." Apparently they are, for as "Underground" as Graham strives to be, he has collectively sold over 100,000 units worldwide.Acknowledgment of Graham's contribution as a producer and performer in the underground electronic music movement continues to grow. Further, a personal idea is reflected in his sound. Graham's inspiration, objective, and result aspire toward the eternal. Graham is primarily driven by a desire to create timeless moments and the diversity of his sound is simply a reflection of that same desire. - Overeasy records
